second raring ringtail test rebuild

Recommended Posts

A second test rebuild of raring ringtail was started yesterday for the amd64,

i386 and armhf architectures. Currently running, and with mostly idle buildds

over easter and the current freeze it will hopefully finish within ten days.


Results can be seen at



The archive for the test rebuild is



Some common build failures are:


- underlinking: symbols used in linked object files, which formerly

were resolved by linked libraries. The fix almost always is to add

the library (mentioned in the error message) to the link command.


- Tcl/Tk migration to multiarch locations. For autoconf based packages

it should be enough to adjust the configure arguments for the Tcl/Tk

libraries. The location for the header files didn't change.


- eglibc-2.17 changes: -Werror=unused-result used together with -Werror.


- Some glib/gtk/dbus related build and test failures, however there is

no common pattern yet.


Please help fixing the build failures for the final release.
